I am still waiting for the actual quote that will be part of a signing statement by the Governor when he signs a bill outlawing any therapy that attempts to alter sexual orientation in minors.
Of course (and I am tired of having to say this every time) the inclination is not sinful but the acts are. Either way, whether inclination or act, homosexuality is intrinsically disordered. NJ and Governor Christie are outlawing any treatment for those with intrinsic disorders and making declarations on the the sinfulness of this or that. Separation of Church and state indeed.
TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans to sign a bill Monday barring licensed therapists from trying to make gay minors straight.
New Jersey will be the second state to ban so-called conversion therapy, along with California.
The bill passed both houses of the Legislature with bipartisan support in June.
Gay activists pushing the ban were uncertain what Christie would do.
In a signing note accompanying the bill obtained by The Associated Press that will be made public Monday, Christie says he believes people are born gay and homosexuality is not a sin. That view is inconsistent with his Catholic faith.
